    Raindrop on a Garden Lamp

    Here is a photo I took wen I had the camera in hand not too long ago, I was just expirementing with the lens I had on it, and I really liked the way the raindrop sort of fractals nice and even after it explodes from impact!

    Taken just outside the back of my home, when I was on the varanda.

    Yeah this is an interesting image, nice shallow DOF you've done well to get the exploding drop, I like the drop trails in the background, and the little water trails from the exploding drop.
    The choice of mono(sepia) treatment I think invites an extra look on a shot that may have otherwise been overlooked.
    I think its a nice job all round
    Cheers David.

    Wow, great timing! You could straighten the leaning verticals though!

    Personally, I don't like the sepia toning and would probably have gone for a cooler, blue tint, but that's just me.
